Pixel Dilemma has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming title “40 Zombies” – a grindhouse style of retro game inspired by films of the 70’s and games of the 80’s.
Pixel Dilemma hopes to launch a line of grindhouse games which pay homage to an era of film where the music didn’t fit, the chicks were in abundance, and blood was splattering on every frame. 40 Zombies is the first title, but P.D. will need a successful Kickstarter campaign for that (and other) games to be created.
Pixel Dilemma is trying to raise $1,800 to bring 40 Zombies to Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Mac, and handheld versions down the road (iOS, Android, Vita). The funding would be used to purchase the hardware, software, and licenses necessary to be able to release the game across a multitude of platforms.
In 40 Zombies you play as “Bad Ass Jimmy The Slob”, an everyman who’s block has been taken over by zombies. Just as soon as Jimmy is out of beer and the football game is over he jumps out of his recliner, grabs his shotgun, and hits the streets to save the chicks from the zombie horde.
40Z features fast-paced strategic gameplay. It’s a pure survival horror adventure where nothing respawns, so you’re very limited on your resources. Check out the Kickstarter campaign (at the URL below) to see the game in action:
